Decrepify

Each level increases the area of effect of the Ward's Mana Flare, the Mana Flare damage, the negative mana regen and the hp of the ward.

Life Drain

Pugna is a fragile yet versatile spellcaster. Due to his massive base intelligence and high gain per level, he has plenty of mana to cast his spells as much as he wants. Nether Blast is his primary method for dealing damage, and its large area of effect, high strength, and low cooldown make it good for harassing enemy heroes and killing creeps. In addition, Nether Blast also deals damage to towers, which makes Pugna a powerful sieging hero with Nether Blast alone. Pugna's Decrepify spell is useful in several ways. It functions as a decent movement speed slowing spell for catching fleeing enemies, and also amplifies spell damage against the target. Decrepify and Nether Blast make a powerful combination. Decrepify can also be cast on allies, and since it prevents the target from being hit by physical attacks, it gives clever Pugna players a way to deal with potentially troublesome physical attack oriented heroes by either Decrepifying the enemy hero (which prevents them from attacking), or an allied hero to prevent them from being attacked. Decrepified enemies can still cast spells, but with Pugna's Nether Ward placed they will be struck by bolts of lightning whenever they use a skill. Finally, Pugna's natural fragility is somewhat mediated by his Life Drain spell, which rapidly heals Pugna while dealing a lot of damage to his target. Pugna is especially effective at shutting down enemy spellcasters with his Nether Ward, but his versatility makes him good in any situation.

Forcefully raised from the dead with little memory of his former self, Pugna is truly a terrible sight to behold. Retaining traces of necromantic magic, this shamble of bones finds sadistic pleasure in temporarily sending his enemies into a tormented dimension and greeting their return with a blast of unholy energy. Those who survived an encounter with the horror often recount with fearful eyes of how the Oblivion literally drains life from his enemies, giving him a brief, but satisfying, taste of the living.

Notes

• Damage type: magical
• Mana Flare is triggered when an enemy casts a spell and the damage is based on the spell's mana-cost.
• Mana Flare deals the damage before the actual spell is cast, so if the target dies the spell will usually have no effect.
• Nether Ward has 3 HP. Heroes can attack it for 1 damage while non-hero units deal 0.25 damage.
• Nether Ward can be targeted by Decrepify.

Notes

• Damage type: magical
• Life Drain is a channeling spell.
• HP drained depends on the actual damage dealt, so Decrepify increases it and spell reduction reduces it.
• Will continue to drain as long as the target stays within 1100 range from Pugna.
• Drains life in 0.25 second intervals.
• If the target is an illusion it's destroyed on the first damage tick.
• If Pugna's health is full, Life Drain will restore mana instead.
• Can be improved by Aghanim's Scepter (* shows the improved values).
